Corporate Counsel and Assisting Attorneys

When a business is faced with an insurance coverage dispute or an attorney is faced with a coverage question that extended beyond their area of experience, one option is to call in coverage counsel with extensive experience to handle difficult or high limit cases.

I assist corporate counsel by providing experience with insurance law questions while providing the benefit of counsel “on-call” only when needed. This reduces total legal expenses and offers the avenue to get an answer quickly and efficiently.

Attorneys have access to an insurance attorney for discrete issues without the need to maintain a full time insurance coverage attorney within their firm.
